Re: How can I get banned?

Send a private message to Andi requesting a voluntary suspension. She will get to it when she can.

Then press the logout link at the top right of your screen.

Then leave. Get a beer w a friend or something. When you are ready to come back, let a mod whom you have off forum access to know.

Peace.

Take it easy.

Re: How can I get banned?

Peripheral, I know that you feel hurt and angry right now and I'm sorry for that. Unfortunately, it can take some time to review a situation and respond appropriately. We know you are going through a hard time right now and sometimes in such a situation the best solution is to distance yourself from the source that is causing you the distress. Maybe getting some sleep will help or as Abi suggested calling a friend.

I hope you feel better soon,

Tazoz

I appreciate your thoughts,

but I have so much to present,

and keep running into the same problems

Over and over

we all have ADD it is hard enough trying to present the information.

If they disagree, I don't mind, but why don't they just ignore me,

instead the same derailing BS.

I love being wrong,

why don't they prove me wrong?

I love this place,

and at the same time,

the same crap keeps happening in thread topics I am interested in.

Why won;t they just stay away from my threads.

I say away from theirs.

Instead they act like they are doing the world a favor by mispresenting the facts that they adimit they have never read.

It been happening for years.

If I get banned i can't come back.

If I don't get banned this crap is going to drive me nuts.

I learn a lot form people here,

but some of the same poeple I learn so much from.

Keep misrepresenting Dr.Mate.

Everything Dr.Mate has said is about emotions and ADD is coming more true every day.

And people that disagree with him are now starting to discuss the information.

But they won't acknowledge the untruths they said about Dr.Mate.

I am tired of asking for respect.

Please ban me because or I will keep coming back.

I don't want to keep going on here with this same old BS.

Some of the things said About Dr.Mate are unaccpetable.

Like calling him a Stickman-Dizfriz

and Trooper Keith saying Dr.Mate is just trying to sell books.

These two people have a lot of respect here,

and people listen to what they say.

What they say about Dr.Mate is untrue.

.

Re: How can I get banned?

And there is no place to bring my arguments to,

because we can't discuss these topics in public.

ANd so the discussions/threads get closed.

Then the next,

then the next,

then the next....

And I still haven't presented 90% of the topics I want to discuss...for years.

and I am slow as molasses to boot.

Makes me crazier.

LOL giggle giggle, lol, giggle, cough...

Please ban me.

Re: How can I get banned?

I don't want a suspension,

I want to be banned.

I will log out now.

I hope when I return I am banned.

Side Note I don't drink.

Makes me even more loopy.

Re: How can I get banned?

It's a discussion board, not a presentation board. Having things to present is not a good reason to come here. If you want to make presentations, use a blog.

Re: How can I get banned?

I understand and empathize with your issues peripheral but are you sure that being banned and never coming back is what you want?

Peri

I think you perhaps need a break but I, for one, don't want you to leave permanently. You would be missed.

Take care of yourself,

Dizfriz

Re: How can I get banned?

I would miss everyone as well, thanks.

I want people to know I'm not depressed.


After being adopted at 3 months things got better for me.

I am lucky to be moderately sensitive, but not severely.

I am playing the victor.

Through my own experiences,

and the other people's experiences close to me.

I have learned enough to see the differences,

in having at least one healthy primary caregiver.

A primary caregiver can be a parent, grandparent, uncle and aunt, foster parent, adoptive parent, etc...of either gender.


If I wasn't so lucky,

my sensitivity might be much more severe.



Not all children are born as extra emotionally hypersensitive.

Although all children are born extra emotionally sensitive.


Also a lack of support resulting in prenatal stress,

in the biological mother's lives,

may or may not,

be a major factor in a infant being born with a extra emotionally hypersensitive temperament at birth.

Depends on individual circumstances.


I am all for promoting support for all primary caregivers.

Especially before the age of 4.

The long term economic savings on our health care systems would be enormous. (for all health issues, not just ADD)


Adoption stress is only one type of maternal separation stress,

that can make specific gene expressions more likely.


Without looking at any statistic,

I am guessing there has got to be at least 5 to 15%,

of all child/parent relationships,

with some type of abnormal developmental stressors,

during early development?


Abnormal developmental stress to me,

is uncontrollable stress,

over a time period during early development.

When nature demands certain conditions required for healthy human attunement.



There is a developmental "window",

when about 90% of human brain develops at a extremely rapid rate before the age of 4.

The infant is born with no capacity to self regulate.

The window is about 80-90% closed after the age of 4.


Development during this time period largely determines the way we will subconsciously react for the rest of our lives.


After the age of 4,

humans require conscious awareness,

to promote development.

There is no need to stress ourselves out,

to promote development

One coconut fills a basket,

just by bring the information to consciousness.

The human brain (without stress) can slowly improve.

After the age of 7,

environmental influence (including parental influence) in development of self regulation weans,

almost completely by the age of 21.

Although healthy attachement and attunment is important for all humans throughout life.

In the case of self regulation.

The critical time of development is before 4.




The window never completely closes,

but the rate of development goes from "light speed" peaking at about age 1,

to a snails pace, about the age of 21.


The rate of development slows so much less,

that we can't develop ADD after the age of 7. (excluding acquired ADD)


Healthy Self Regulation requires healthy attunement.

Primary Caregivers of ADD children usually do provide a loving attachment relationship.

All mammals require some type of healthy attachment relationship for healthy natural brain development.

Unlike many mammals, with humans especially attunement is required to adapt.(like humans do)


I will look into a blog.

But without the relationship between other members here at ADDF.

There is no relationship required to cause my development.



Usually when primary caregivers suffer with health conditions of their own.

Or lacked attunement in their own early childhood.


Understanding what conditions promote development,

and what conditions result in a lack of development is mandatory.


ADD therapy/treatment/prevention should always start by supporting/treating/therapy for primary caregivers who are suffering. (of all genders)


Not everything I learn about ADD is from Dr.Mate.

A combination of Dr. Barkley and Dr.Mate and Dr.Perry and Prof. Panksepp
(as well as the reoccuring thought to look more into Dr.Hallowell's)

I wish I had the capacity to look into more.

My apologies to any other researchers I haven't had time to focus on,

like Dr. Schore, Dr. Siegle, Dr. Syele, Dr Porges...

and many other researcher who inspire researchers.

These researcher are like the symbols on a slot machine.

(Before they stop moving.)

Its important to come to terms in understanding our own capacity and limitations.

One coconut fills a basket.



Recently I watched a Dr.Barkley video,

where he gave a brillant example of attunement.


I tried it and I was over joyed with the results.


Dr.Barkley recommend to the primary care givers to touch their children/teen on the shoulder, arm..

when the primary care giver wanted the child's attention.

I am sure the same therapy would work for adults with ADD, as well.

Dr. Perry recommends early education teachers,

to professionally do the same.


Eye contact and sound and smell are also forms of "touch tools" as well.


The word Relationship is the key.


Without a relationship.

There is no development.
